CFB: ISU's Tom Farniok Named To Rimington Watch List

Updated: Monday, May 19 2014, 04:53 PM CDT
AMES, Iowa – Two-time All-Big 12 center Tom Farniok was
named to the 2014 Rimington Trophy Award Spring Watch List, announced today by
the Rimington Award.



The Rimington Award is given annually to the nation’s best
center and is named after Dave Rimington, who is considered one of college
football’s greatest centers during his All-American career at Nebraska
(1979-82).





A native of Sioux Falls, S.D., Farniok enters his senior
season with 35 career starts, the most by any current Cyclone. He was Iowa
State’s Arthur Floyd Scott Award winner in 2013 as the Cyclones’ top offensive
lineman.





Farniok was an honorable mention All-Big 12 pick as a
sophomore (2012) and added second-team All-Big 12 accolades by the San Antionio
Express-News as a junior (2013).





Farniok will earn his degree in the summer and begin
coursework in graduate school.
